Spirent Communications Unveils New Comprehensive Active Network Monitoring and Testing Solution for WiFi and Fixed Lined Networks - AxonPulse

Spirent Communications unveiled a new comprehensive active network monitoring and testing solution for WiFi and fixed lined networks - AxonPulse. A quality Internet experience creates trust and loyalty from customers using an enterprise or business for work, visiting with friends or using it as their 'go to' store. As part of Spirent's Enterprise initiative, AxonPulse gives IT operation teams of any size, in any industry, the ability to efficiently find and fix network connectivity and performance issues before the end user is impacted. AxonPulse complements current passive visibility solutions by accurately simulating customer network activity and measuring their experience. Hotels can use AxonPulse to test guest WiFi connectivity while simultaneously checking-in guests. In a retail network, AxonPulse tests the reliability of point of sale networks or the customer experience using apps such as Facebook, YouTube or a proprietary application over the store's WiFi connection. Financial institutions can monitor and test network performance across branch offices to ensure a quality user experience for both employees and customers. And large entertainment and sports arenas can use AxonPulse to ensure smooth and seamless connectivity to public WiFi. AxonPulse can be placed anywhere on the network from the edge to the core, wireless or fixed, and measures key performance metrics such as throughput, video quality, download and upload time as well as the performance of popular applications by actually using them. AxonPulse is comprised of three components - AxonCore, AxonPoint, and AxonCloud Control. Designed to complement existing monitoring solutions, AxonPulse gives IT teams the tools to manage real user experience on fixed line or wireless networks - all managed from an easy-to-use cloud-based portal. AxonCore is designed for data centers and primary network locations. It provides monitoring and test capabilities on 1G and 10G fixed line infrastructure to ensure maximum performance across the core network. AxonPoint is designed for the edge of the network and gives network managers monitoring and testing capabilities on fixed line and WiFi networks, at branch offices or at the access level of large WiFi installations. It even gauges performance of user-facing connections to internal and external services such as Facebook and YouTube and other public applications. AxonCloud Control allows the solution to be configured and managed from the cloud. Field techs and IT managers can log in from virtually anywhere to get access to quality of service and user experience analytics, thus cutting down on time spent performing site visits.

Spirent Communications Plc. Provides Earnings Guidance for the Third and Fourth Quarter of 2014

Spirent Communications Plc. provided earnings guidance for the third and fourth quarter of 2014. The company announced that trading conditions softened in the latter part of the third quarter in the United States and China. Demand levels dipped sharply as a result of merger activity and delays in capital expenditure as future new technology deployments are being assessed in areas in which Spirent has increased its investments. The reduction in activity levels has primarily impacted the Networks and Applications business. As a result, revenues for the third quarter are expected to be slightly below $110.0 million compared to $107.7 million last year. It is anticipated that the weakened market conditions affecting primarily Networks and Applications will persist through the fourth quarter of 2014. The company announced that revenue in the fourth quarter of 2014 is currently expected by the Board to be in the range of $120.0 million to $125.0 million compared to $115.4 million for the same period last year. Operating profit will be impacted by the loss of gross profit on lower revenue than expected.
